South India comprises of complex network of numerous rivers spanning over a combined area of approximately 900 km, which gives rise to majestic waterfalls, canals, and the popular backwaters. This tour is a must for nature lovers since it not only shows the scenic beauty of the backwaters and rivers, but will also allow you to witness the rural, untouched and normally inaccessible parts of Kerala via houseboats and boat rides.

Begin your journey by first visiting Trivandrum, where the Vizhinjam Lighthouse is considered to be a must visit. It provides a magnificent panoramic view of the city, and in the evening, you can relax at the Shanghumukham Beach. Alleppey is most famous for its backwaters and water boats along with the picturesque landscapes, majestic lagoons and canals.Experience peace and calmness in the backwaters, and let the tranquil water of the seas and lakes coupled with the pleasant environment soothe your mind, while you enjoy your stay in a comfortable houseboat.A walk through the Kumarakom bird sanctuary, housing over 30 species, provides a pleasant experience.

Athirapally waterfalls, located near Cochin, is the largest waterfall in Kerala and provides a magnificent view. Pykara and Avalanche Lakes in Ooty are two amazing lakes, which provide a relief from the commercialisation usually prevalent in most tourist destinations. You can enjoy a peaceful boat ride as well, while witnessing the scenic beauty all around. Enjoy a breathtaking view at the Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, and pay a religious visit to the ISKCON Temple, providing a lively experience during the evening aarti. And of course, the Gateway of India is considered a must visit.
